Knits for Tall Gals

An often neglected demographic, is the taller woman, and with that in mind, I have focused on making some things that are 'long enough' for the taller figure. My height-rich girlfriends volunteered to model my creations.
 Here is Jean, wearing a Taiyo (cotton, silk and wool) and merino cardivest. She is over 5'10" and this does not look skimpy on her. It's 30" long lying flat, but of course drapes longer on the wearer.

Vista, about the same height as Jean, is wearing a waistcoat in a merino combo which is 25" long. SOLD

Not a tall gal, Audrey is more like 5'6" and this tunic is really long on her. But she volunteered to model it to enjoy the squishy extrafine merino yarn. Again, it is 28"  long, lying flat, but much longer on the wearer.

Vista in a Silk Garden and Rios merino cardivest. 
And finally, Vista models the Silk Garden and silk-merino tunic, which Jean had to have! Jean said "It's long enough!!"
All (but this last one) are available for $100 with free shipping. Email me.
